Vidya Balan recently voiced her support for Kangana Ranaut in her highly-publicised legal battle with Hrithik Roshan, but it didn't go down well with Vidya's husband Siddharth Roy Kapur. Hrithik's upcoming film "Kaabil" will be produced by Siddharth and his wife's statement has reportedly miffed him.
"Vidya's quotes have caused a major embarrassment for her hubby. One reason for that being not just because he is the producer of Hrithik's next release 'Kaabil,' this will make things awkward between him and his actor. Also, Sid is a very non-controversial chap. He likes to stay away from other people's fights. As a studio head, he has to work with all actors and he has to stay neutral. But now with his wife Vidya's taking up for Kangana, he has become a part of it," DNA quoted an insider as saying.
"There is a reason why an outsider like Sunny Leone finds so much support in the industry from actors and actresses, who don't even know her. But not one person from the industry has taken a stand for Kangana, despite the fact that she has acted in many mainstream Hindi films and is friends with a lot of actors," the insider added.
While speaking to a leading daily, Vidya praised Kangana for taking a stand for herself. "It is none of my business to be judging anyone but I have the greatest admiration for Kangana because she is standing up for herself. I think that is very creditable because as women we find it very easy to stand up for other people, our family members, children, husbands, parents but we rarely stand up for ourselves. She is standing up for herself, so kudos to her and more power to her for that," Vidya told the Indian Express.
The "Te3n" actress' statement seemed to have irked hubby Siddharth, who seldom gets embroiled in controversies and is known to maintain a good relationship with all Bollywood celebs. Though Vidya supported the "Queen" actress, there are several other stars who have been asked about the issue. Akshay Kumar was recently asked about the same and he said that he wanted to end everything soon and in a good note.
Meanwhile, Hrithik and Kangana's legal battle is still going on and apart from leaked emails and photos, several other revelations have turned the matter ugly. Fans are also waiting for this war to end.
